We have been to The Station 4 - 5 times now and I cannot fault their breakfasts. All I can say it that its fabulous. The portions are big and their homemade Hashbrowns are to die for. The staff are very helpful and cheerful.

Went to this restaurant for Sunday breakfast. We both had the eggs benedict with bacon. This was served on homemade hash browns, which were great. Good coffee that was lovely and hot. We used our entertainment card as well, so that was a bonus.

It is really good to experience a place with sincere staff that care. The best brunch in Canterbury with an Egg Benedict of distinction. The site has lots of character and a must visit for all visitors to Rangiora.

Everything works! From the welcome and service to the food, their touch of class will be noticed. A small menu means quality.

First time diners. Loved this place. Very nostalgic being our local railway station years ago. The staff were great... there was a fairly long wait for our orders however it was unusually busy for a Sunday. A suggestion...perhaps if the wait is going to be more than 30-40 minutes, say so and try and give patrons their coffees at least... More

Stopped by here for lunch on a Sunday. I had the beef hash and a flat white - portions were generous and very tasty. We were spoilt for choice because everything was calling out our name. The restaurant is set in the former Rangiora station and I really enjoyed the eclectic ambience. No wifi available.

The Station has many good points: the venue is charming, the outdoor area with a fish pond, sand-pit, and petanque court is very kid friendly. There is plenty to keep kids busy while you enjoy a light meal or a good coffee. The service was good and our food was served promptly. We had muffins and slices and they were... More
